Nar Shaddaa Loadscreens (using Sharen Thrawn skybox and with horizontal overlay)
AUTHOR: Sith Holocron
ORIGINAL RELEASE: 31 MAR 2017
GAMES: Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2
This mod will not work in Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 1
Once upon a time, I (and probably others) on LucasForums asked for someone to update the loadscreens for Nar Shaddaa as most of us change the skybox to Sharen Thrawn's "Realistic Nar Shaddaa Skybox."
L0ki194 released "Realistic Nar Shaddaa Skybox Mod - Loadscreens" here on Deadly Stream to answer that need. It is a fine mod. It doesn't utilize that horizontal bar overlay that other loading screens have though. My mod changes that by utilizing JCarter426's overlay.
I retook the shots to closely mirror what the original screens had. I even utilized GLIntercept so I could try to replicate the angle of the shot taken in the Refugee Zone as close as possible.
As seen in the pictures provided on the download page, you can see a before and after.
Included in this mod are loading screens for:
load_301NAR.tga - Refugee Landing Pad
load_302NAR.tga - Refugee Quad
load_303NAR.tga - Docks
load_306NAR.tga - Entertainment Promenade
In addition, I've also provided an alternate loading screen - see below picture labeled "301aNAR". Instructions on usage for that file follow.
A notable change from the original picture - besides Sharen Thrawn's skybox - was the speeder that's in the vanilla Docks loading screen. It's not in mine. Even when there's that opportunity for you to fix a speeder in the game to travel to the docks, it's not normally parked there.
For Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2 - Copy "load_301NAR.tga", "load_302NAR.tga", "load_303NAR.tga" and "load_306NAR.tga" files into the SWKotOR2/Override folder.
If you wish to use the alternate loading screen instead of one of the other loading screens, rename the "load_301aNAR.tga" to the approriate listed above then copy that version instead of the other.
Take them out again.
None known at this time.
